Because it's broken, same motivation as in the thread for implementing
ZK authentication.

Also, I seem to have missed something because the thread subject
mentions compression whereas I've seen no mention of it in the
discussion (maybe I just missed it). But, in any case, I would like to
point out this[0]. I'm not sure it's readily applicable to PG's wire
protocol, but just in case I mention it.
